Treetins, an organisation formed by four former ad, PR and marketing professionals in their mid-20s, has a rather endearing mission: to help like-minded strangers ‘bump into each other’.
The people behind the online platform www.treetins.com
are Prince Jacob Thomas (founder), Aditya Dhull (co-founder), Mohit Narwal (co-founder) and Chandy Thomas (co-founder). The website is billed as an online platform which lets strangers interact based on what they express or say, indicating their interest.
The site allows users to register via e-mail or login using their FB or Twitter IDs. It displays messages from users without revealing their identities. If a user wants to connect with another users on the basis of the message, they are offered the option to ‘Converse’. They can send a message to the user they seek to connect with. Upon acceptance, their identities are revealed to each other.
Prince Jacob Thomas, founder, Treetins, said, “Today there are more than a billion people using social media but often, all our online interactions are restricted to family, friends and colleagues. The number of strangers we could connect with and thus the opportunities of collaborating with people are immense.”
The company’s chosen name Treetins, is the anagram of ‘interest’.
